Is there a way, using ipfs cli or the ipfs API, to get the raw data of an IPNS entry? Basically this ?
We want to put a caching layer in front of IPNS to ensure instant resolution and reliability in disconnected mode. We want a cache that is long duration, persistent, and prefers returning an old entry to not resolving at all. In order to implement this in the best possible way, we would like to have the sequence number to ensure that we don’t accept old values.
Would there be a chance to get something like this (persistent IPNS cache and configurable lookup policies) included in mainline ipfs? (no big deal if not, we realise that our use case with mobile devices is a bit peculiar)
